Magnificent! The grounds, clock, entries, statuary, buildings, beautifully restored which made Saxony come alive for me. The bell clock at the entry to the courtyard makes this worth a visit alone. Swing by on the hour. The fountains, the landscaping, the statuary, the courtyard is just completely awesome! While the renovation is far from complete, the entire complex is deserving... More

Very good, very big though. Lots to see. I recommend going when you're full, not thirsty and no need to use the toilette.

Beautiful Palace... A must see if you visit Dresden. Our tour guide was wonderful and explained in great detail how Dresden was affected during the fire bombing toward the end of WWII.

The breadth of the collection is such that there is bound to something that will pique your interest. Porcelain, mechanical automata, surveying instruments, astrologial measuring instruments, precision German engineering et al.

Wondered around the outside only as the day was just so beautiful. Listened to the chimes on the clock and wondered the manicured lawns.

A cold, windy but sunny January, and oh so pretty. The views from the walls are stunning and walking around this place . This is a must visit in Dresden just next to the city centre, you can't miss this.

The garden is surrounded by the walls, so when we first went upstairs to see the garden, we were in awe. It is simply beautiful and a must-visit while you are in Dresden.

Very beautiful palace. I saw its gardens full of snow, but still very sweet. There's a clock that rings its bells every 15 minutes.
